I don't even really get the logic; if anything it just invites viewers to try other shows from other networks in that timeslot.
    Sweeps are one of the many reasons for that tbh.

    Sweeps ( A television ratings term)

    What are "sweeps"? Sweeps are time periods when television stations/networks typically schedule programming designed to attract a larger than usual audience.

    Why? Sweep period programming is designed to attract larger audiences who in turn are exposed to advertising commercial messages. Thus, when the ratings for the sweeps period are revealed, the TV station/network can charge its advertisers more money because more people watched.

    When do sweeps occur? Typically four times a year: the months of February, May, July and November.
    Understanding Sweeps

    AFAIK, it makes sense. Many people aren't too bothered with catching up on shows during December - January. With Christmas and the holiday season, a lot of people go on vacation.

    December is also the exam month for many college/university students, then moving back home for the holidays, spending time with family etc. Also, the end of the NFL regular season and the playoffs take place during December-January. I can see the ratings dip for that reason as well.

    Her reaction to Rick telling her what really happened between him and Shane made me want to strangle her. She was all Lady Macbeth a few episodes ago and basically urging him to do it and now she's shocked? GAGF!

    Whenever I see the last post in OT is Fusion posting in this thread I always assume it's about Game Of Thrones. Keep getting disappointed.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    I haven't seen the last 2 episodes of the season for the Walking Dead, but I really hate that kid. Someone needs to throw him in the way of a zombie. The way he teased that zombie before he escaped and did you know what made me so angry.

    They have a really good marketing team. A lot of films don't even advertise this much.

    I'm a stark through and through. Winter is coming.

    Haha, I actually had a ton of stuff to post, but I felt I might annoy non-fans so I resisted posting.

    Well I don't want to actually go and find out **** about it myself, because that would make me some sort of fan or something.

    One of my friends is absolutely nuts about this show and the books. He's also one of the biggest Lost fans I've come across. On top of it all, he loves baseball.

    Think him and Fusion will get along really well. May even start their own sketchy, underground fan club.

    1 The Sopranos
    2 Buffy
    3 Dexter
    4 X-Files
    5 West Wing for me.

    Walking Dead will be up there soon if it carries on as it is. Andrew Lincoln was better in Teachers though, the zombie apocalypse needs Kurt and Brian, would cheer it up immensely.

    Oh and I heart NYPD Blue, but they could have ended it when they started casting various annoying ex-child stars as sipowicz side-kick

    Had a friend at school who was absolutely obsessed with Buffy. Used to watch it whilst having my dinner back in the day, but never really got into it.

    Got into Buffy in a big way a few years ago. More recently I've thought it tailed off quite heavily towards the last few series, and was mostly out-done by its own spin-off, but I'm still happy to nail to my colours to the Whedon mast.

    Yeah, big fan, actually.

    Interesting twist on the Holmes/Watson relationship with Watson (Mike) as conscience & genius and Holmes (Harvey) as more or less complete undiluted sociopath.

    Must admit I was watching for about three weeks until I got the pun in the title too.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
